BottleRock Napa Valley 2020, presented by JaM Cellars, just announced its eighth annual festival lineup today and I couldn’t be more thrilled! Last year my husband and I decided to drive up last minute with our eight-month-old to attend, and it was truly one of our favorite experiences. So I simply had to share my love for this festival and hopefully encourage you to go this year too! Here are the top 5 reasons I’m excited for BottleRock Napa Valley 2020:
BottleRock Napa Valley 2020 Lineup
This is seriously the lineup of my dreams! Red Hot Chili Peppers, Dave Matthews Band, Stevie Nicks, Miley Cyrus, Khalid and Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals will all be at BottleRock Napa Valley 2020 … and these are just the headliners! BottleRock Napa Valley does such a great job combining the world’s biggest bands and artists alongside the hottest up-and-coming music acts. This year over 75 acts including Zedd, Brandi Carlile, The Avett Brothers, Janelle Monáe, Maggie Rogers, Blondie, Of Monsters and Men, Maren Morris, Empire of the Sun, Foals, Tegan and Sara and dozens more are set to perform at the music, wine, craft brew and culinary festival this Memorial Day Weekend. Here’s a taste of my experience last year, which will really give you a feel for the atmosphere and good vibes:
The Food, Wine, Craft Beer and Cocktails
Seeing as this festival takes place in Napa Valley, you better believe the food, wine, craft beer and cocktails are top-notch! The offerings are very eclectic and spread out over the grounds, so there is no need to eat or drink the same thing twice unless you want to because it was THAT GOOD! I definitely came back for seconds of these shrimp and grits. Hey, you can take the girl outta the south, but you can’t take the south out of the girl.
BottleRock Napa Valley also has the legendary Williams Sonoma Culinary Stage, showcasing a unique mashup of cooking demonstrations with renowned chefs, celebrities, performers and rock stars. Details on the 2020 Williams Sonoma Culinary Stage will be announced at a later date, but I’m sure it will be amazing! Last year we saw Eric McCormack aka Will from Will & Grace showcase his skills and we were VERY entertained.
Mom and Dad need to get their fun in too and BottleRock Napa Valley is the only family-friendly festival I know of. There is a wonderful designated family and kids area with cute activities, a place to change diapers and nurse as needed. In general, this is the cleanest festival I’ve ever been to and we felt safe and comfortable everywhere we went. We even ran into other families with babies in tow. The silent disco is also a hit with families!
Time and Place

Wow, Bottlerock sounds like a very fun event to experience. We have a slightly similar event in our place and it’s fantastic too!
This sounds fabulous. And the inclusiveness of having a family friend space makes it so much for tenable for those in that stage of life! Many thanks for sharing your experience and lovely photos!
What a fun festival! I love all of the talent and bands that played. Would have loved to attend in person!
Wow! Of course, this has to be exciting! I so wish I could be there in Napa Valley this spring!
I have never been there before, but it looks like lot of fun. Would love to visit in the future x
I assume this is in the East Bay? We visited San Fran and Oakland many moons ago and meant to take in Napa Valley – the wine trail etc. but ran out of time. The festival looks great, particularly with it being child-friendly. Great write-up, thanks.
I love this is family friendly. I gotta get to Napa Valley soon!
I’ve been seeing a lot about Bottlerock on Instagram and so wish I could go!
You sold me with Dave Mathew’s and Stevie Nick’s! Dang I am so jealous right now. And oh beer and food with my fave artist! This is killing me that I won’t get to experience this.
Looks pretty fun! I haven’t been to Napa Valley. I would love to experience something cool as this.
This looks like such a fun adventure! If only I lived closer I would definitely go to this!!
I’ve heard of how cool Napa Valley is and the festivals. Seems like you had great fun!
This really looks amazing festival. I would love to attend with my family. Thanks for sharing the details with us
The list of performers for this year is awesome! Such great talents in that list. Good food, beer, great music and fun family activities all in one venue!
